    Britain's FTSE snaps four-session losing streak

    Britain's top share index rebounded from its lowest level in more than a year on Tuesday as risk assets breathed a sigh of relief on signs that a global trade war could be averted. The blue-chip FTSE 100 closed 1.5 percent up at 6,994.85 points, with almost every constituent in positive territory. A weak pound typically supports the FTSE by giving an accounting boost to UK blue-chips companies that have revenue in dollars.

    Trade detente hopes turbocharge European shares; Casino surges

    European shares surged on Tuesday on incipient signs of a detente in trade rhetoric between Washington and Beijing, while French supermarket Casino was boosted by a grocery delivery partnership with Amazon. European markets took their cue from a robust rebound on Wall Street that ran into its second day on Tuesday after reports the United States and China were negotiating to avert a trade war. "The volatility that we're seeing in markets reflects those who were initially fearful of the headlines, and those that see opportunities within that," said Chris Dyer, director of global equity at Eaton Vance.

    Online broker IG Group's third quarter revenue rises as client base grows

    IG, which provides online stockbroking and trading services to retail investors, said net trading revenue rose to 152.9 million pounds in the quarter ended Feb. 28, from 117.4 million pounds a year earlier. Despite facing uncertainty from proposed regulation on these products, IG Group and rivals Plus500 (PLUSP.L) and CMC Markets (CMCX.L) have all reported healthy revenue growth as they signed up record numbers of customers last year, partly due to the bitcoin boom. Global regulators are cracking down on the fast-growing 3.5 billion pound ($4.9 billion) spread-betting industry in which most retail investors lose money.

    Global regulators propose crackdown on financial spreadbetters

    Financial spreadbetters targeting retail customers should be licensed to stop them exploiting gaps in cross-border rules and preying on inexperienced investors, global regulators proposed on Tuesday. The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) proposed a coordinated crackdown on sales of rolling-spot forex contracts, contracts-for-difference (CFDs) and binary options. Such products can be used to bet on moves in currencies, interest rates and other market prices, and are usually sold through online trading platforms without advice, and with most retain investors losing money, IOSCO said.

    Meltdown raises fears of 'financial innovation the planet doesn't really need'

    The global market turmoil of the past week has shone a light on complex trading instruments listed in the United States and Europe - a number of which have been taken off the market - which some investors blame for the scale of the disruption. Monday's stock sell-off triggered the biggest rise ever in S&P 500 volatility (.VIX) futures, forcing Credit Suisse and Nomura to close down products that enable investors to short the VIX after they posted massive losses. The VIX itself measures market expectations of how choppy the S&P 500 (.SPX) might be over the coming month.

    Bark worse than bite? Spreadbetter stocks defy regulatory threat

    British online trading platforms signed up record numbers of customers last year, partly on the back of the bitcoin boom, even though regulators issued repeated demands for the industry to do more to warn customers of the risks. For now, few investors seem ready to bet that regulators will turn words into the kind of actions that would endanger the industry's stellar growth. The platforms, known as spreadbetters, offer products called contracts For difference (CFDs) that allow clients, in some cases, to speculate on minute swings in stocks and cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin – a practice likened by one fund manager to betting on horseracing.
